Palin Never Said “No” to Bridge Money, Kept $233 Million

September 10, 2008 at 7:55 pm 3 comments

Palin supported the bridge to nowhere, campaigned for the money.  She didn’t say “No Thanks” – she said “Please“.   What happened next? Congress approved it and sent over 200 million in US taxpayer dollars to Alaska in the care of Sarah Palin.  When the “Bridge” project was pulled? Sarah kept all the Federal tax dollars (gave a few campaign supporters some big highway contracts).  The ethical thing to do would have been to send the money back to U.S.  But then, that’s not Sarah Palin.  She participated in this year’s convention for Alaskan secession from the USA – this group no longer wants to be American.  Not only did she participate, but her husband was a party member for nearly 10 years.

After a year of supporting the proposed bridge, near Ketchikan, Gov. Palin never said “no thanks” to the Federal funds promised by Congress — $233 million.

    Speaking of ethical, should Obama continue his talk about Palin and the bridge to nowhere when Obama and Biden both supported the bridge?

    BTW, she followed the law, here it is:
    http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/getdoc.cgi?dbname=109_cong_bills&docid=f:h3058enr.txt.pdf#page=36
    Note in sec. 186: “SEC. 186. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any
    amounts made available pursuant to Public Law 109–59 for the
    Gravina Island bridge and the Knik Arm bridge shall be made
    available to the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public
    Facilities for any purpose eligible”

    Now tell me what politician, Obama included, would break the law?
    She didn’t do anything wrong, she was given the money by Congress for her state. She didn’t approve the dern bill, she didn’t write the bill, Congress did both! And that’s where the problem lies, Congress. I wish someone somwhere would point that out. If they’d stop all the pork barrel stuff, they wouldn’t have otherwise innocent Governors over a barrel, wouldn’t you say? If you were in her position, can you say you’d have said no, when you were doing nothing wrong?

    The point is that she is a liar (IMO, lying is unethical). So Congress is at fault, too? OK…Sure, I never said they were innocent, they’re not the focus.

    The topic is Palin and her repeated lies…
